Mercedes-Benz has released images and a teaser video of what seems to be the production version of the GLA concept which was shown earlier this year at the Shanghai Motor Show.

From the images you can see the GLA shares its styling with the smaller A-class and CLA-class models. The GLA is heavily influenced by the concept GLA although some of its design cues are toned down.

Power can be expected to come from a turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine found in the CLA model with around 155kW, and will be mated to a seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission and 4Matic all-wheel-drive.

The compact crossover will have a two-bar front grille, bulging fenders along with creased body lines, a spoiler mounted on the tailgate and Mercedes-Benz’s latest headlight design.

The GLA will make its official debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
